NeurOptimal® is a life-changing technology. Solidly founded in the fields of neuroscience, non-linear dynamics, mathematics, neurology, psychology and electrical engineering. Designed to significantly enhance the human experience.
Although the central nervous system (CNS) optimizes itself by minimizing your discomfort, the CNS cannot detect the differences precipitating the descent into dis-regulation (e.g. anxiety, ADHD, depression, OCD, lack of cognitive performance) soon enough.
Acting as a mirror to the brain NeurOptimal® directly gives the central nervous system information it does not perceive or receive in any other way, in the same time frame. Meaning the brain gets to see what it's doing while it's doing it.
NeurOptimal® provides your brain with early indication of instability;
It provides a feedback loop the brain did not have before.
With this feedback, the brain is designed to self-optimize.
For example, the brain gets the feedback that you are experiencing anxiety only when the anxiety has taken you over. The time delay in feedback means the brain can only restabilize when symptoms have occurred. NeurOptimal® works as an early detection system giving the CNS the information that you are moving towards the edge of stability.
In this information-rich situation the brain will course correct and restore intrinsic flexibility and resiliency that is always and already there. It allows for the brain to self-organize and stabilize instead of waiting for dis-regulation to take over.
Symptoms and problems simply drop away seamlessly for most people.
Patterns such as anxiety, PTSD, difficulty focusing, concentrating,
and sleeping are released.
Unlike other types of neurofeedback which manipulate or direct the brain towards what is considered normative data, NeurOptimal® is the world's only dynamical, non-invasive system meaning it is able to alert the brain, without stimulating, manipulating, or pushing the brain in any certain direction therefore, there are absolutely no side effects. The brain is an intelligent, self-organizing dynamical system which can actively utilize information to its own benefit. Viewed from this perspective, the most important element in helping the brain to self-organize is simply the provision of accurate information (that is, feedback).
Why does it matter that NeurOptimal® is a dynamical, non-linear system?
Compared to linear neurofeedback, NeurOptimal's® non-linear dynamical system directly affects the safety of the system, the absence of side effects, and the far-reaching and all-encompassing nature of the results you can expect.
NeurOptimal More In-Depth
During a NeurOptimal® session you will wear small sensors on the sides of your head. These pick up the delicate electrical activity of your brain (256 measurements per second) while you relax or continue about your business, and listen to the music. There is absolutely no effort or work required on your part. NeurOptimal® software uses mathematical calculations (transforms) that translate the brain's electrical currents, into brain wave frequencies. Using the language of the brain, the system is able to communicate the brain's activity back to itself. The brain gets to perceive its activity in real time, moment to moment.
While recording your brain activity, NeurOptimal® triggers the brain's orienting response when it detects that the brain is shifting phases. The orienting response is the brain’s ability to detect change in the internal and external environments (change being deviant, out-of-context, or unpredictable stimulus) and learn from that stimulus. The brain will naturally infer meaning of deviant stimulus, and respond to it in an optimal way.
NeurOptimal® processes your brain signals very rapidly and when it detects them moving into "instability”, the music pauses briefly. These repetitive, micro-interruptions (i.e.deviant or out-of-context stimuli) in the auditory experience is the “feedback.” The system is essentially communicating to the brain the following message "there is variation in electrical activity. What do you want to do?"
Why would the brain place a value on auditory interrupts?
Unconsciously our brain understands the mathematics behind the timing of the pauses, which act a bit like a “rumble strip”. The brain adjusts its activity without any effort from you to stay “within” the rumble strip. The brain does this on its own — NeurOptimal® doesn’t tell it to. NeurOptimal® simply provides the central nervous system with information about what it has already done and allows the brain itself to sort out the value of that information. Thereby, harnessing the brain’s intrinsic intelligence to regulate the amount of brain waves necessary in any specific moment.
Imagine you are walking along a path on a cliff side, in the dark. You’d probably be floundering. But then a flashlight is shone showing the cliff edge. The flashlight doesn’t tell you what to do, but now you can use the extra information you have (the location of the cliff edge) to walk more certainly along your path. The brain learns from the information it is given until over time and without your conscious awareness or effort, it learns to organize itself more efficiently. The manifestation of this in your life is that cognitive and emotional challenges and barriers drop away, and life just seems easier.
NeurOptimal® allows the brain to reconnect with its own internal resources to determine what is appropriate in various situations and how best to cope with this information. It is the NeurOptimal® system’s permeability with the brain’s natural processes that allows the process to produce such positive effects for so many people regardless of what particular concerns prompted them to use NeurOptimal® .
Instead of “chasing problems” the NeurOptimal® system simply prompts the brain to source its own internal, information-rich way of approaching the world across all situations. This non-invasive prompting encourages the brain to return to far more efficient and effective operation regardless of internal and external challenges and demands.
NeurOptimal® is simple. But its simplicity belies its power. It’s powerful because it communicates directly with your brain, and there is nothing to interfere with that. There is no outside person having to evaluate or diagnose you, and no outside person deciding what training you need. It’s your brain effectively communicating with itself and making its own changes. Period.
Getting the information (or feedback) the brain needs to organize itself, allows the brain to release patterns that can get in the way of it functioning well.
Who Can Benefit From NeurOptimal®?
Everyone! Here's why:
Two thirds of trainers reported that the majority of their clients (almost 60%) showed 90% or better improvement.
When brain processing efficiency becomes compromised through the stress of modern living, information overload, trauma, or other influences, loss of performance and suffering arises. The body systems are affected, processing and integration of life experience becomes inefficient, and the additional burden placed on the conscious mind results in compromised performance in the world. Consequently, problematic behaviors, ill health, and dependencies arise.
